A Case for Snail Mail

Take a look at these hand-drawn postcards by Carolyn Sewell. Colors, letters, lines and curls, I might just beg to be her peep.

Raindrops, Cats & Hearts

Dorset, England's Heidi M is quite gracious. She's eager to share her process and what makes her "tingle and buzz with creativity." Take her up on the offer: peek into her sketchbook where she's developing characters for a new story, and take a gander at her hand-painted greeting cards, including one of Frida Kahlo. You’ll fancy Heidi’s
pencil-sketched watercolor portraits. They’re pretty and polite.

Black Magic Woman

Black Lilly is Aya Rosen’s ongoing project—- she is designing and illustrating her own 78-card Tarot deck. Mystics, Occultists and Doodlers rejoice! Her cards feature traditional archetypes accompanied by bold marks, stunning use of color, and unabashed sensuality. Treat yourself to her other art (including album covers and vintage porn) and don’t forget her etsy shop. What craft!

Giveaway: We're A Happy Family

As my guest blogging here comes to the end of its happy cycle, I cannot believe how fast this month went by and how much fun it’s been posting for you DA readers. I feel lucky and glad to have been so warmly welcomed by the DA family and as a token of my gratitude, as Papa (above) suggested to me, a giveaway would be most suiting to celebrate the good times I’ve had 'round here and to thank you all for the love, generous feedback and endless bubbles of inspiration.

So speaking of families, a while back I was delighted to be invited by the super talented Estibaliz Hernandez to design a set of four cards along with another seven international artists to form the ‘We are a happy family’ children’s card game. It was such a great project to be involved in, I enjoyed the process so much and the end result is truly fabulous. Read on for giveaway details »

Fan Mail, Part VIII

We love it when we get fan mail and this one in particular is out of the ordinary. It came as mail, literally. That's rare form these days and it's a beauty too.

Café con Leche (coffee with milk) is the imaginary home of Roi and Inés from Mexico City. Their website is filled to the brim with drawings, animations and endless goodies, so stop on by and give them some love.

We are so thrilled with the postcard. Next time we're in Mexico, we'll have to share a cafécito!

An Ace in the Pack

I've been enjoying Lesley Barnes's ongoing adventure of designing an amazing full pack of playing cards since day one, or should I say card one.

As she puts it: 'something to help me out in my attempt to give up working and become a professional card shark'….

Lesley also told me of her love for kings, queens, horses and heraldry: ‘So doing a set of playing cards gave me the chance to indulge in these pleasures fully as I could create four warring families - the clubs, the hearts, the spades and the diamonds - each with their own creatures, characters and kingdoms.

Her sense of humour does shine through in the set as each individual card tells a little story which is embellished by her very own unique style. I also love the exclusive sketches she sent me especially to share on this post. Yes, as you might have noticed by now, i do have a slight obsession with other artists sketchbooks, I guess it gives us a great insight on how individuals think visually.

Chisel Away

Diem Chau. Wow.

Here's a little something different. As self-proclaimed doodlers, we have all grown up coloring with crayons. Well, you can forget all about that. Diem Chau takes her crayons and carves the most intricate and delicate figures out of them. Patience and an astute attention to detail have got to be some of her fortes. Take a look at more of her work, right after you pick up your jaw off the table.
